madam clerk please call item 2. >> an action item. >> thank you. are there any members of the public that would like to speak on the item, if so please come forward. seeing there is no one interested on speaking on public comment. is there a motion to approve item 2? thank you. this we go. $2? thank you. this we go. madam clerk please read item 3. i'm here to report on how things are going with the legislature. i have a couple things that i want to alert you to the edition of the matrix and i want to cover those first. also it's appropriate to take stock on what's happened to the
1:07pm
legislation. i will quickly cover that. first the changes to the matrix on page 4 we've added ab 41 from san mateo, a new taxing authority to fund opportunities, authorizes sales tax to be voted upon within that mpo region. we are recommending a watch and we'll know better how it looks like it's going to go. this bill has bounced from natural resources to rules committee to local government. so it's been a bouncing bauchl -- ball. it's on a matrix and we'll be watching it and if it comes back stronger at a later day. we recommending deletion ab 680
1:08pm
had been a spot measure and amended recently to apply a state route which has no applicability to san francisco bay area for your policy so we are recommending taking it off the matrix. a recent amended measure is being recommend today add ab 738 on page 7 of the matrix. it tends to provide a liability shield for employees of agencies that are developing bike plans. it sounds like a much needed simplification. we need to take a look at the bill at more depth to see how it fares in its first committee and finally as a watch position we are recommending the addition of sb 792 by senator son ya. this
1:09pm
provides a new region natural plan by the joint counsel it in the san francisco region trying to drive consolidation of planning functions amongst m t c. for your information, mtc has recommended a watch at this point and prefer to work with the author. this is several years running and he's tried to force more collaboration between the entities in this region. that bill is set for hearing next week and we are recommending a watch. that's it for the additions and changes to the matrix. to give you an update on the carl moir program has some funding for your high speed rail program and there are 2 measures that are identical that is toextend fees of the carl moir program as well as other fuel filter
1:10pm
programs. the first measure ab 8, it passed out of the public transportation committee last night. it's companions or look alike sb 11, did pass last week and it set for a hearing this afternoon. it's been a tough push in the senate. there is a lot of concerns raised by the senate analysis but i think it will pass today based on the vote count that we've been putting together. several bills to note. a b 164 adds performance bonds for local private partnership. you will impose that because it will increase the cost unnecessarily. it has not been set yet and it is a referred to the assembly local government committee. they are sort of
1:11pm
running out of time for action this year but we'll be monitoring that in case it does get set. mr. blooming field on page four of your matrix extends hov access for green and white sticker plug in hybrids and electric vehicles to 2025. that's viewed as an over reach and as well by doing so, it allows or extends the ability of these same vehicles to have toll free access and certain quarters in the state. that bill is set for hearing next week. i'm not sure how that's going to fair, but we are working on that ab 749 by mr. guerrero is on page 7. in the p 3 framework that the doil drive project went through, it
1:12pm
had to go through public service venture entity that belongs to the transportation secretary and this bill does a lot of things to modernize the p 3 loft, it also provides pie yack this new entity with more members and the ability to kill a project rather than waiting for transportation commission. that was the basis for opposing it. they have run into troubles in our opposition and are not accepting amendments yet so we'll see how they fair next week. we have a limit high rail bonds to those already been sold basically killing off the high rail project. that bill passed last night in assembly transportation committee. i think it may have gotten one courtesy vote and another measure that you took opposed
1:13pm
poings on page 8 of the matrix. this will take the map 1 authority that was approved last summer to allow delegation to be extend today -- to cal trans for transit projects. it seems like a misfit to have cal trans doing local agency transit project, meet the clearance. therefore you opposed. when i checked with the office yesterday, they indicated they will put the bill over until next year. they just run into too much opposition. one area of interest where the three measures where you took a support position that reduced the threshold, these will be constitutional amendments and go straight to the ballot. sca 11, the first 2 deal with
1:14pm
transportation and includes sales taxes, the 3rd one only applies to special taxes which allows special tax for transportation to be included but it's a broader net in terms of it's authority to do a threshold. all of those are scheduled to be heard with several other measures to deal with other policy areas for senate government and finances committee on may 5th. i had a conversation with the protem's office and we may see these bills move to keep them alive and in position from a deadline perspective, but he does not expect any of these voter threshold bills to be adopted year and anticipates if any due it will be in 2014. that's my report. >> are there any questions,
1:15pm
colleagues? any member of the public who would like to speak on this matter? all right. seeing there is no one from the public and seeing there is none from colleagues, we close this. are there any questions? all right. we have a motion? thank you very much. motion made by commissioner chiu without objection. madam clerk please read item no. 4. >> reading no. 4. an action item. >> very much. good morning commissioners. this item is to recommend a planning services a board to parsons in terms of the treasure island mobility study. this st you had is per our agreement with the treasure
1:16pm
island authority. we have an agreement with tita to support the treasure island transportation plan. the treasure island of transportation plan includes a very innovative program for making transportation sustainable as the island develops and focused on parking pricing and congestion and to mitigate any impact on the bridge and provides a program for transit and other management techniques to help improve non-automobility to the island. this time what is needed is planning work to complete the preimplementation, activities in support of the pricing program. so analyzing alternative pricing amounts,
1:17pm
relationship between parking pricing and the toll between different transit service levels are needed to support the pricing program and the initial system's design on the technology side for how the pricing program would be compatible with that and with sf park and etc vment there is a planning dimension and design engineering dimension to the contract. the contract is funded by a grant that we run from mtc, metropolitan transportation commission. it's very highly rated, this project was very highly rated in the program so planning will be fully funded by that as well as a match from tita. it's about 18 months duration of the
1:18pm
planning study, a total contract value is $300,000 and we are meeting actually exceeding the db equals for this contract for this team. i'm happy to answer any questions. the competitive process we did receive 4 bids and interviewed 3 and recommended the strongest. thank you. thank you. any members of the public that would like to speak on this item? please come up. >> i'm sorry, i just wanted to quickly acknowledge that we have jim from pb here if you have any questions for pb. >> good morning, commissioners, my name is jackie sacs, i'm

1:20pm
clerk please call item no. 5. >> reading item no. 5. this is an action item. >> thank you very much. >> good morning commissioners, deputy doctor director for finances administration. this is the annual budget since we adopted the budget in march. what i have for you is on page 47. it's attachment a. a high level view of the budget adopted for fiscal year 2013 and the changes we are proposed and what we are looking at if this item were to be adopted.
1:21pm
on page 45 i have a more detailed version of the budget amendment where we go line byline with different types of grants. i would like to point out the items we will be increasing and decreasing on a budget. the first item is our prop k sales tax revenue. this amount was budgeted at 77.5 million, but as of january 14, we collected $2 million in sales tax revenue. we recommend we increase it by $7 million. then we have the corridor investment study. since the last budget we were able to obtain $81,000 and san francisco state university and general properties of the galleria. we anticipate
1:22pm
spending about $63661 for the grant activity. in august of 2012 we were able to obtain a grant for $1.5 million. we will increase federal revenues and decrease other revenues by $251, 892 dollars. next we have the project, we are experiencing a total amount of $91,000 for next year. during the year we were able to obtain
1:23pm
$434, 531. the treasure island mobility mansion, the item you just heard before, this item, we received a $500,000 federal grant from mtc. we will be spending approximately $64, 101 this year. this is the largest budget announcement. we are recognized $34.1 million revenues we'll be receiving from mtc. what happened is we anticipated this in the last fiscal year but do -- due to a lack of full completed analysis, we were not able to pay cal trans and not able to recognize that revenue. this year we anticipate we'll receive most of the invoices and anticipate receiving full complete invoices to recognize
1:24pm
the full $34 million. in addition to the project, there has been a switch of responsibility. more like a shift. cal trans has asked authority to take on more responsibility with the p 3 contractor and with this there would be additional $3.3 million of expenditures but no overall budget adjustment. the budget will remain the same for that project. for the better market street, this was an item heard before the board. an additional $305,000 and we anticipated spending $327,000 of that in the next fiscal year to. highlight, i would like to say $61,000 was received in grand by the harney way transportation plan. we were able to contract a couple more
1:25pm
items through the travel demand model service bureau. we also will be taking off the caesar chavez redesign services because we were able to finish that project during the last fiscal year. in terms of our capital project for the prop k program initiatives, we are increasing our capital projects by $20 million. this is for 59, 40 foot motor coaches procurement project they were able to procure this item in advance of what the original schedule so we plan on adding $20 million to this budget. last item, as you may recall during july of last year, we were able to obtain a new line of credit. with that line of credit we were able to reduce our interest fees by approximately 1.2 million. in
1:26pm
relation to that, we'll not need the $295 million debt that is originally put on the adopted budget for the fiscal year. we are in process to determine whether well need that for the next year budget. in terms of the cac, this item went before the cac and there was a unanimous muss -- vote for this item and we are seeking a recommendation to approve the amended budget for 2013. i'm happy to go over more details or answer any questions you have. >> thank you, very much. >> see if there is any public comment on this item. i see one person. >> good morning, commissioners,
1:27pm
